The country’s Journalists the subject of mockery and jest comments on social media publication. A social media publication on Wednesday sought to create a credibility crisis of reporters who were at the heavily attended press conference of the Gyan brothers read by their counsel, Kissi Agyabeng.
Despite the calls to boycott the press conference, almost all the media houses in Accra and beyond had their reporters fully represented at the press conference at the Alisa hotel on Wednesday.
The sad situation is that a media registration sheet which contained contact details of reporters present were snapped and uploaded unto Facebook and twitter.
The social media comments went viral with the number of journalists present at the Gyan brothers press conference but the source of that publication is yet to be known.
The publication has generated mixed reactions from senior colleagues whose names, media houses and mobile numbers were published on the social media.
Facebook and twitter were busy with the Gyan brothers press conference despite calls by Managing Director of Graphic Communications group, Ken Ashigbey and other professional bodies to blacklist the Gyan family because of the alleged attack on a journalist at a press conference in Kumasi.
Ken Ashigbey, MD of Graphic Communications Group where Daniel Kenu works, had tried to rally support from journalists/media houses not to attend the Gyan brothers press conference.
The social media said that Journalists thronged the Gyan brothers press conference simply because of the usually “white and brown envelops” that would be shared to reporters but this time around, their expectation was higher with the hope that dollars would be given to every reporter that was represent but their hopes were dashed.
Asamoah Gyan, the captain of Black Stars, the national team together with Theophilus Tagoe, Castro de destroyer, a hiplife artiste and Janet Bandu, an upcoming actress went on a jet skieing spree/stinch at Ada estuary had been missing over two months now.
A section of the media has backlashed Asamoah Gyan asking for his arrest since rumours indicated that Theophilous Tagoe (Castro de destroyer) and Janet Bandu were sacrificed to enhance his football career.
The mortal remains of the two, although not yet declared dead cannot be found after several searches by the police personnel and search parties along the sea.
Gyan brothers, made news again when news went that a reporter at the Kumasi branch of the Daily Graphic newspaper had been attacked and beaten by hired thugs after he had asked a question at a press conference.
Daniel Kenu was beaten after he asked Asamoah Gyan at a press conference that people are alleging that he (Asaomaoh Gyan) has knowledge regarding the wherabout of two missing friends and that rumours suggested that he had used them for ritual purposes.
The elder brother of Asamoah Gyan, mobilised thugs after the press conference to beat the reporter messlessly.
Therefore, the Gyan brothers organised a press conference to clear their names but that didn’t go well with some journalists.
